Getting ahead with "Last-Minute" Christmas Cake
I usually do Delia's rich fruit cake recipe for Christmas but this year have decided to try her 'last minute' mincemeat cake. Just wondering how 'last minute' it really is and how well it keeps. Is 7 weeks too soon to make it? Without thinking, I've started soaking the dried fruits and wonder if I should leave them for a week before making the cake?!
